    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Sophi, I'm also enjoying roses today: Rose Pivoine from Nicolaï. A nice hot weather scent.

    Good morning all and Happy Bastille day for those celebratingToday I'm off to meet a friend over some coffee. she's also one of the few friends that also apreciate niche perfumes and scents in general. Looking forward to get out of the apartment a bit,since I tend to think too much when I'm here. A good thing my brother and sister also are here for the holiday! Sotd is Dzing! No real summer heat here, just rain, so I can still wear my spicy scents without any problems of cloyingness

    Vive la France!!!



    Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise
    Notes: bergamot, neroli, wild fennel flower, star anise, oleander, tuberose, frangipani, purple vanilla orchid, clove, white amber, vetiver, vanilla bourbon absolute, tonka bean

    Despite that rather hearty-sounding note listing, this is a sheer, almost watery fragrance, with transparent florals and a non-foody vanilla. I love anise in fragrances and can pick out its refreshing character here, yet it is subtle and well-blended. Very soothing and pretty scent.

    Take care, everyone!

    I'm sampling some vintage Caron Infini pdt this morning (thanks L! ). I can't smell much...I'm waiting for my skin to warm it up so I can begin to get what it's all about.

    Have a good day, all!

    Après La Mousson. Well, it rained a little yesterday. Not exactly a monsoon, but any excuse!
    Out here we are running for the wide open spaces, the road-smell after the rain.

    The Elle did not work...turned sour on my skin after a wonderful 30 minutes. It's been scrubbed off and I've got on a single spritz of Bois de Paradis.

    Happy Bastille Day! Think I'll join petrucciji in Etat Libre d'Orange Jasmin et Cigarette!

    (Tested DSH's Nouveau Gardenia this morning. After a first blast reminiscent of superglue, it settled into a rather realistic gardenia. Will test again, as longevity didn't seem too good--but I often have that problem, in the morning especially.)

    Sampling Matin Calin by CSP and guess what: The reviews are right - it DOES smell like baby vomit. Blech.
